Report: Clarence Clemons Suffers Stroke In Florida

Longtime E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons suffered a stroke at his home in Florida, according to Showbiz411. While there has been no official confirmation of his condition, the site said the 69-year-old is “seriously ill” and that Bruce Springsteen and his bandmates were told to visit him as soon as possible. Clemons has played with Springsteen’s band since 1972, quickly becoming well known to audiences as “The Big Man.” Though ill enough in recent years to require a wheelchair on stage, the saxophonist returned to the limelight in 2011 thanks to his multiple appearances on Lady Gaga‘s new album, Born This Way, even performing “Edge Of Glory” with the singer on last month’ American Idol finale.
